CPH-R, you are wrong.
I don't know senator Hill, but he is right pointing out that a UNSC
, which had stood united behind its own resolutions during twelve years including Saddam's last chance #1441, might have convinced him to obey to the resolutions making the war unnesessary.
Maybe he would not have obeyed anyway. We will never know.
All we know is that part of the UNSC
being serious about the resolutions, and the other part chikening out when the final one had to be carried out, that did not convince him to obey.
Then there are of course the people who think that 12, 24 or 36 more years of "inspections" would have done any good. They are not serious people.
